Friday 55 Flash Fiction #160 Precious Cargo.....

They were chasing him, trying to trip him take it away.

Heading straight for the opening, twisting, turning, so they couldn't grab him.

Almost there, he held on tight to the precious cargo.

A roar went up

as he slid over the line with the rugby ball safe in his arms and scored a try.

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

I was close - I was guessing a football. Of course, that's my American bias.
